‘I’ve just got to do what I can,’ said Barkley as chelseafc.com quoted, after being asked if the fact he was the sole Englishman involved on Saturday provided a good chance of catching the eye of the Three Lions boss.
‘I’m still learning and giving 100 per cent in training, trying to learn the new manager’s methods. Hopefully with my performances on the pitch I’ll be in the thoughts of the England manager.'
On Chelsea's start to the new season under Maurizio Sarri, the midfielder replied: ‘It’s a brilliant start, it was a difficult game against Arsenal but the main thing was to get the three points.
‘We’ve started the season really well and got six points from two games. We’re feeling really confident, we’re still learning under the new manager but things are looking positive.’
